Democrats Warn of Consequences on Tax Bill

Senate Minority Leader Anthony Hensley, a Topeka Democrat, made clear his thoughts on a tax bill under consideration.  Lawmakers advanced a major bill last week to cut income and sales tax rates. The measure would cost the state some 800 million dollars in 2014. Hensley says the loss means lawmakers won't be able to increase education spending or fund a property tax cut that has already passed the Senate.

The House has passed its own tax plan. The bills are now going to a joint conference committee, where the two chambers will try to work out their differences. While a final product is likely to have a smaller pricetag, Hensley says he fears House lawmakers will threaten to pass the Senate bill in its current form.
